We held a webinar last week to provide an interactive demonstration of how to get set up on dmi.io in three easy steps. If you didn't have a chance to attend the webinar, you can access the recording below (scroll down further to see the timestamps of each section if you want to cut to a specific topic).
Many of our first sellers have asked us how we will attract buyers that they don’t presently reach. We've heard other similar questions: "Why should I spend my time entering my data products into your website? How will it benefit me?"
"Twenty-five or 30 years ago, the thing that was differentiating companies was how well managed they are. But if you think about the companies that have just kicked butt in the past decade, they are deep-domain, technology-led, innovative companies—Google, Amazon, Apple. So I think this notion of, if the only common thread you have as an industrial company is the fact that you think you're well managed, you can still be a pretty good company, but you're not going to be a dominant company, a competitive company over time."
Do you have control of your data?
Summary / TL;DR
dmi.io is the first data marketplace designed to help small & medium Data Aggregators do business more effectively and efficiently. In our model we don't compete with Aggregators: you sell directly to buyers via our platform (no reseller licenses), and we don't touch your data - you use your existing delivery systems. Our fees are only 10% of the value of each transaction, there are no listing fees (so we make money only when you do), and we cover the cost of payments to keep things simple and straightforward. Sign up now and you can post your first listing in just a few minutes! If you have a number of listings you wish to post, please contact our supplier account management team and we can help with the data entry.
About a year ago I had a series of conversations with a major household name institution who had realized that there was this enormous untamed monster lurking in their conceptual basement, which if tamed could transform their world. Guess what, the monster was called ….. data!
For my opening blog on dmi.io, I want to talk a little about our vision so that those of you coming to experience the site have a clear picture of what we aspire to.
